    Cool Logical move on the issue of Iraq

    Subject: FW: statistics


    >Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the U.S. involvement in
    > Iraq , here's a sobering statistic:
    >There has been a monthly average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theatre
    >of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths.
    >That gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.
    >The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000 persons
    >for the same period.
    >That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in
    >the U.S. Capital than you are in Iraq .
    >CONCLUSION: The U.S. should pull out of Washington .
    Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
